Hi Chaps,
I am fitting my interior. Day 1 question.
What is the correct way of fitting the chrome strips, I am seeing conflicting methods.
Do not take the foam to the edge, check
Wrap the vynal under the edge 1/2" :shrug:
Fix the 7 clips, as per the pic.
Try to fit the chrome, no joy yet

I gave up on the ridiculous clips and glued them on.

I have used the recommended clips on my 2 cars and it has worked perfect.
The foam is trimmed a little shorter and the vinyl is simply wrapped around the edge. You need to use a rubber hammer with a wooden block and it will work great.
Would it had been easier and/or faster any other way, Jaguar would have done it differently.

Thanks team.
